Following the UltraRange Pro, Vans returns with the standard edition of their new sneaker, simply dubbed the UltraRange.
The new silhouette “leads the path forward for innovation, emphasizing the brand’s expanded vision to create a versatile footwear model that provides advanced comfort, lightweight traction, and superior mobility combined with Vans’ timeless style,” said a press release.
It was created with inspiration from Vans pro surfer Pat Gudauskas, who lives out of a suitcase on multiple expeditions a year. Vans set out to create a new shoe that offered maximum versatility across diverse landscapes and lifestyles. “What if we created something that brings the look of Vans together with the functionality needed for different terrains—city streets, boardwalks, mountain paths,” Pat expressed. “…Bring the element of comfortable, hearty and functional all in one shoe—it would have comfort and utility, but look like Vans no matter where you are.”
The UltraRange takes design cues from Vans’ iconic Old Skool silhouette, but gives up a massive update. It gets a modern shape and new co-molded midsole, while retaining the iconic Sidestripe. It blends premium materials, breathable textiles, and a responsive sock-fit construction.
Furthermore, it features a reverse waffle lug for superior grip and traction.
The Vans UltraRange is available now at Vans stores and online.
